I have been capturing images of wildflowers for nearly a month now and had all but given up on posting any winter images for this past winter season. But low and behold here we are on April 20 and we are expecting a dusting of light snow overnight and freezing temperatures. Spring in Indiana lol !!
So now I have the opportunity share some images from this past February when we were having a pretty tough stretch of winter. I captured these as we were getting a heavy snow one evening here in Madison Indiana. A fresh snow at night is so beautiful and it makes everything it covers so magical and serene !!
Tonight’s snow should be nothing like that and I can get back to the business of photographing wildflowers here in Southern Indiana fairly quickly
I try to get out and photograph as much as possible but as we all know weather is a huge factor in where and when I do get to photograph. And as you know the weather can change at a moments notice and in this image things changed at a crazy speed that I almost didn’t catch.
For the last month we have experienced an over abundance of rain and that has really hampered my time out. So a couple nights ago once again we had rain all day that led into the evening. I arrived home walked out into the yard with my dog and after observing how dark and flat the light was and with rain still lightly falling I decided to ditch another evening and went inside to catch up on post processing.
Sitting at my computer I noticed a change in the light streaming from the crack in the blinds of the window. I happened to be on facebook at the time, when my feed came alive from posts about the incredible rainbow we were experiencing at that moment. I quickly grabbed my camera bag and ran out of the house to find the slowly fading rainbow in the sky and my heart dropped, as I did get a few good shots, but didn’t make out in time to get the rainbow when it was displaying at it’s fullest display.
But once again time came into effect I figured since I was already out I would wait a bit and see how the sunset turned out. I think I made the right call on this one I eventually captured another great sunset over Madison Indiana from one of my favorite spots.
I guess if there is a moral to the story it would be that things in nature can change very quickly, from the time I got home to dark cloud covered day it went to a amazing rainbow and then to this wonderful sunset a little more than a hour had passed. So don’t give up too soon when you go out and be patient with the changing conditions it can and does get better out there !!
The Madison Milton Bridge served as a great center piece for this lovely scene which unfolded earlier this summer. Instead of looking to the west for the sunset I turned east and was treated to this incredible view with all these beautiful reflections !!
